Lukashenko: Goals and principles of UN Charter should remain unshakable

MINSK, 3 September (BelTA) – The goals and principles enshrined in the UN Charter should remain unshakable, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said in an interview with the Chinese newspaper People’s Daily which he gave before the working visit to China. The interview was published on 3 September, BelTA has learned.

The head of state spoke about the post-war world order led by the United Nations. “We must remember that as an improved version of the League of Nations the United Nations played its positive role because after 1945 there were no hot wars between major powers,” Alexander Lukashenko said.

The President noted that the situation is different today: “The previous decade with its one-polar focus is over. We are once again earnestly speaking about building a multi-polar world.”

In this respect, the Belarusian President believes that the ideas of 70 years ago that the central role should belong to the United Nations are important again. Of course, the United Nations should keep up with the times and conduct reforms. Alexander Lukashenko is convinced that the goals and principles enshrined in the UN Charter as well as the purview of its main bodies envisaged in this document should remain unshakable.

Alexander Lukashenko noted that Chinese people have thousands year old glorious historical traditions. It is common knowledge that the diligence of Chinese people helped China turn into a modern country playing a crucial role in the global processes, the engine of the global economy and a role model for developing countries under the wise leadership of the country’s top-ranking officials.

The Belarusian President wished the people of China peace and the fulfillment of the Chinese dream about building a stronger and more prosperous state on the basis of robust economic development, personal success and wellbeing of citizens.

Belarusians are reliable and faithful friends in the center of Europe for the Chinese people, Alexander Lukashenko emphasized. “Belarus values and is proud of all-round strategic partnership with great China,” the head of state stressed.
